Hand-crafted meditation benches that are functional works of art.   Perfect for many hours of comfortable sitting.

Fixed and folding benches available!

"This bench is incredibly comfortable!"
Jennifer M., Iowa City, IA
 

These are one of a kind hand-crafted meditation benches.  My benches are made from locally recycled hardwood and typically have a stone inset or inlay design on one side.   Each bench is unique.  There is a hand-hold in the top for ease of carrying.   Sides are joined to top using a either a locking miter joint or a half-blind dovetail joint.   The benches are created with loving care in my wood shop, MacB Woodworking, where I am dedicated to fine woodworking.   A thick detachable cushion is included that enables the meditator to remain quite comfortable for long meditations.  For added comfort, use the bench with a zabuton or folded blanket underneath with the meditator's feet hanging off the back.

  • Dimensions (inches): 7.5H x 7D x 17W, 15 degree slope from back to front

  • Materials: Locally recycled hardwood (walnut, cherry, oak, maple)

  • Finished with multiple coats of satin polyurethane followed by a hard wax application.
